We are not currently scheduling rentals. We hope to be able to resume rentals in 2022, with the understanding that confirmation is contingent on pandemic safety guidelines.

Located in a former carriage house on 7 acres in beautiful Fairmount Park, the Art Center has art studios, a dance room, a professionally equipped theater, an art gallery, and a kitchen. There is plenty of free parking around the building, and the park grounds include a playground, four tennis courts, a basketball court, and an open field.
